Screen capture permissions

This data control is available on Android only.

Choose whether users in your organization can take screenshots of the mobile app.

Attachment permissions

Restrict downloads or the ability to share attachments in Asana on mobile devices.

Widget permissions

Restrict the Asana home widget on mobile devices, so users are unable to view tasks directly from the phone’s home screen.

Microsoft Intune

Available on the Asana Enterprise and Enterprise+ tiers, as well as legacy tier Legacy Enterprise, Asana's Microsoft Intune integration enables IT admins to protect corporate data by applying security policies like restricting downloads, restricting data transfer between apps, and requiring PIN or biometric authentication. 

The integration applies to Asana’s iOS and Android mobile apps, and is not relevant to Asana’s desktop app. The integration is currently only available for iOS devices. Support for Android is expected to launch in 2024.

To set up the integration via the mobile application management settings, follow these steps:

  1. Click your profile picture in the top-right and select Admin console from the list
  2. Select Security from the menu on the left
  3. Scroll down to the Mobile Apps section
  4. Click Mobile Application Management
  5. Select Microsoft Intune and Save changes
  6. Then, sign into the Microsoft Intune Admin Center
  7. Follow the Microsoft instructions here to create an app protection policy for Asana. In step 5 of the Microsoft instructions, select Custom Apps, and enter “com.asana.Asana” in the Bundle ID field.

After you've added Asana in Intune, assign it to your users by following the instructions detailed here.
